We've been growing plants here in Devon for more than 30 years but don't be fooled into thinking that the climate will make our plants soft and tender; we are nearly 1000 feet above sea level on the edge of Dartmoor and in a 'normal' season would expect to get 45 inches of rain a year. Temperatures in the winter can fall to below -8 Centrigrade so we think it quite likely that most of our plants will go on to more favourable climes!
Planting up containers is a great way of making your garden more accessible during the winter months so why not position a tub near the front door and grow some 'kabschia' Saxifrages.
These little gems form a mound of evergreen scaly leaves,smothered with a mass of flowers from February onwards. Their delicate beauty belies their toughness, they are very hardy and their flowers can often be seen peeping through snow. Growing them in a container is an ideal way of enjoying them, bringing them nearer to eye level and allowing them to grow without being overshadowed by larger plants.
